"Our prepress department found the size of the Jacket is only 14Inch in the file (please refer to the attached picture) but it should be 14.25Inch according to our quote for the size of the cover. We could add 0.25Inch by ourselves but there may a slight change in the image and word position. Can you provide a new file of size 14.25Inch to us or should we just add this by ourselves? We also found that the text is 4C but we can change this to 1C by ourselves.
Please confirm if that is ok."
You know, I am such a lucky guy! I have an artist (Michal Dutkiewicz) and a designer (Ryan McDonald-Smith) who both know what all this means, and who both have worked tirelessly on this Ned Kelly project to details to one quarter of an inch (yes, we are old school, here!) to bring this project to perfection just for you, you lucky future Ned Kelly reader!
Comicoz is Nat Karmichael's publishing imprint. Nat is committed to preserving a permanent collection of Australian comic and comic strips. He feels that there is a need to recognise comics' contribution to and depiction of Australian culture.
Since 2011, Nat has self-published over twelve comic-related books and was Publisher-Editor of
Oi Oi Oi! -- the last series of nationally-distributed comic books of original stories to appear on Australian newsstands. He is a member of the Australian Cartoonists Association and edited the Association's journal Inkspot for 14 issues from late 2015. For numerous years he has been the Lead Judge in the Ledger of Honour Awards for the Comic Arts Awards of Australia (formerly the Ledgers). These days Nat dreams of retiring from his occupation as a Clinical Nurse in the Psychiatric Emergency Centre in Queensland's largest public hospital, so that he can spend more time with his long-suffering wife and their six children and fourteen grandchildren. And perhaps publish some more comic-related books.
Comicoz acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay respects to elders, past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.
